Tweet Rage Slam
Big & Rich's John Rich is slamming Nike for choosing Colin Kaepernick as the face of their "Just Do It" 30th anniversary campaign.
The GRAMMY-award winning singer called out Nike in a series of tweets yesterday and even predicted the brand's stock to fall.
Kaepernick -- a former San Francisco 49ers player -- originally led player protests during the National Anthem in the NFL.
Since the announcement, thousands have taken to social media to say they will never wear Nike again.
Hey @Nike I guess you made @Kaepernick7 your new “face” of the brand because you love the way his socks look with your shoes? @Reebok here we come. #WeStand @TomiLahren @greggutfeld @kilmeade @RedneckRiviera pic.twitter.com/tgtbl8VFzv— John Rich (@johnrich) September 3, 2018
Hey @nike if you're gonna make the shoes, make the PIG SOCKS to match. Right? Cmon, people will LOVE that.— John Rich (@johnrich) September 3, 2018
I support every American's right to protest whatever they want. However, if you endorse someone who wears #PIGSOCKS that's where you lose me. If @nike wants their "swoosh" to be associated with calling our police "Pigs" then so be it. I have a right to not buy their products.— John Rich (@johnrich) September 4, 2018
